My new phone was delivered on Monday and I couldn’t wait to try it out with my Fimi and Hubsan Zino drones. It took a day to get it configured with all my apps and settings and I was able to give it its first runs yesterday morning. It worked well with both of them and as I was especially pleased with the footage that I got with the Fimi, I thought that I’d make a video and upload it to my channel on Youtube.
There’s very little lag between the drone and phone video and the new phone’s screen also seems a bit brighter. There’s just one thing with it though. My old phone had a USB 3 connection while the new one has a USB-C. This is OK as far as it goes, but for some weird reason the latter keeps turning itself off in certain situations once it’s been used. I don’t know why, but it does this with both drones and if you disconnect and reconnect them for any reason the phone has to be rebooted for the connection to be restarted.
This must be some kind of unintended glitch or flaw in its design but I guess I’ll have to live with it unless and until I come across some way around it. However, it doesn’t stop it being very annoying, especially as it wasn’t something that happened with my old phone, which was an earlier version of the same model 🙁
